Workouts – Last Week Today – May 8

My next half marathon is coming up in 6 days!  This time around I’m not cutting back as much as I did before, since I felt that it was just way too much.  We’ll see how I feel for this one.

Since my 30 day plank challenge ended, I’ve been very forgetful about including planking in my routine.  I did manage to get in some planks this week.

After all the awful stormy weather, we were blessed with true spring time weather here in H-town after Sunday…  lows in the mid 50’s and highs in the mid 80’s, and low humidity… chamber of commerce weather!

Here is how my week lined up:

Sunday – 10 miles easy, but it did not feel that easy at all.  I started about an hour later than I wanted to and it was hot and humid, but I got ‘er done (average pace 11:32)

Monday – Rest

Tuesday – 4 miles easy with Sorcha (average pace 10:41), planks 3 x 45 sec.

Wednesday – 10k virtual run for “May The 4th Be With You” presented by Level Up Runs.

Thursday – Rest

Friday – 4.3 miles easy with Anam (average pace 11:11), planks 3 x 45 sec.

Sadly, our favorite path was blocked by a huge tree that had fallen across it. I hope the tree gets moved soon, as it is a good path for running with the dogs because it has a nice little pond that they can cool off in.

Saturday – Rest

TOTAL miles = 24.5


I’m linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin’ for the Weekly Wrap, plus Nicole, Annmarie, Angelena Marie, and Michelle for Wild Workout Wednesday.

    6 days! That’s exciting. I wish I had a half this weekend. You remind me that I need to run my “May the 4th” run. Did you change the look of your blog? Chamber of Commerce weather — I need to remember that. I wish we could have more of it, but summer is here now and mornings are humid. Good luck at the half! Thanks for linking with us Vicki!

      Did I see something that you found another half to run? Yup, I changed the look of my blog… just trying to get the look I want.

    Last summer we were biking an came across trees that were blocking the path. It was quite a seen, us trying to carry our bikes over/under the mess. Thank goodness no one saw us!

    What a unique name Sorcha, I love it and such a pretty dog! Wow you do have some debris in that path for sure! I hope it gets taken care of soon! Good luck on your upcoming half, can’t wait to hear how it goes.
    I’m on a plank streak right now. I only committed to M-F of this week cause I’ll be in R*E*L*A*X mode come this weekend but if truth be known, I’m gonna try and sneak in a few planks. 😉
